It further alleged that the PM Narendra Modi was not giving this issue the due attention and was instead busy attending rallies in Maharashtra ahead of the assembly polls. Congress leader Rashid Alvi said that the government should act tough on the border issues. NCP leader Majid Memon said that such personal remarks are common in the run up to elections and should be avoided. Oct 8, 2014
